Samurai of Legend is an online multiplayer with players from all over the world. After over 2.5 years in operation, they have had over 800,000 player accounts created. Samurai of Legend World 2 just launched in August 2009 and is trying to attract new players.
The current design at world2.samuraioflegend.com/register.php has proven to be a little too cartoonish for their prime demographic of males age 18-25. Samurai of Legend is looking for a new design that attracts a more mature clientel. At the same time, however, SOL does have early teen visitors so we need to stay away from anything overly adult-oriented.
The design must keep in mind the wide range of screen resolutions used by internet users world-wide. Current resolution demographics on the site include
If you have HTML cut-up skills, let us know as well as eventually we will need this service despite it NOT being part of the contest. If we find an outstanding design, we may be interested in paying for matching banners and even potentially a new in-game design.
But to be clear, the contest itself is for a new registration/Landing Page which should be designed to get as many people to register as possible. When we pay for visitors to come to the site, and they do not signup, we lose money.
ALL images used in the design must be of legal use. This generally means they come from istockphoto.com, stockphoto, shutterstock.com or other legal sources. We've had great entries in past contests which lost because the graphics used were copyrighted. We will not be offended if submissions have water-marks in place, as long as winning designs are without them.
Images of interest can be found at the following location. These images may be used, and are copyrighted property of samuraioflegend.com. Using them is not a requirement of the contest but the two HighR images were commissioned with this landing page in mind.
